BandRockFunk

If you like different styles, you can listen to a lot of bands, or you can just listen to us. Our main sound is rock, but there is plenty of Jazz and Funk in the mix and it all comes together quite nicely. We even have a spicy latin song that a Salsa congress could really get down to.

Biography

Bad News, based in Cambridge, MA, has evolved over time from an instrumental band formed in the summer of ’05. However, it wasn’t until January ’07 that they completed their sound by adding a vocalist. With spicy beats from Ram on drums, funky bass lines from Paul, shredding solos from lead guitarist Adam, beautiful harmonies from guitarist Greg, vibrant lines from trumpet player Joe, and soulfully sweet melodies from their singer Raechel, this band has a unique mix that can’t miss . Musically talented and able to write complex progressions in varying styles, you'll never get bored with their sound. In addition to playing driving rock songs, such as “Kuato,” this band is able fuse rock with multiple genres in meaningful ways. With songs ranging from the upbeat “Funk Rings” to the bluesy “Lil Bow Wow” and the Spanish sounding “9th Street Latinas,” their sound runs the gamut and keeps you entertained. Bad News is now beginning to make a name for themselves in the Boston music scene, playing in venues such as Tommy Doyle’s in Harvard Square, the Paradise Lounge, the Milky Way, King’s Lounge, Good Times Emporium and the Bulfinch Yacht Club to a constantly growing fan base. Keep an eye out for this band as they continue to put on energetic live shows and prepare for the upcoming release of their debut album.

Discography

We are well underway for finishing our first album! It will have 10 songs, and will most likely be out early in 2008!

Set List

Our set list is a living breathing thing. If we play only our recorded songs we have about 1 1/2 hours of purely original diverse music. But we are learning some covers, right now we are tightening up a remix of Dr. Dre's Forgot About Dre. This might sound weird from a rock/funk/jazz band but it sounds real tight with killer solos and some fun rearranging going on. Also we are not scared to jam.
